The Most Desirable Corvette Ever?

The 1967 Corvette is considered the most-loved Corvette ever produced. The combination of classic C2 styling, along with an incredible array of powertrain and comfort options, makes it one of the most desirable Corvettes ever. Not bad for a car that was never supposed to be made!

Classic Car Overview

Aztec Copper w/Biege interior, 265/240hp, 3-speed manual transmission. The 1956 model year was a huge milestone for Corvette. This was the year that Americas Sports Car when from an impractical Roaster to a much more user-friendly Convertible! Corvette had its first major redesign in 56. And with the exception of the dash/instrument panel, everything was basically brand new! Of course, the biggest change was the inclusion of roll-up windows for the first time. Along with that was a soft top that was redesigned to make it much easier to put up and down. Especially with the optional power assist! Exterior wise, everything was new. The absolutely beautiful body featured taillights that were sculpted inter the rear fenders and the iconic side coves made their first appearance. Which were available with a contrasting color! Up front, the chrome tooth grille remained in slightly modified form. And the headlights were now devoid of screens. Engine choices were all V8s. No more 6cyl engines! They included the base, single 4bb 265/210hp, the dual quad 265/225hp and the very rare Duntov dual quad 265/240hp. And that leads us to our featured car . . .If we were able to climb into our hot tub time machine and travel back to 1956 expressly for the purpose of ordering the ultimate Corvette, the car presented here might very well be the example on the top of our list!This 56 is equipped with the very rare (and documented original) 240hp 265 with the Duntov cam. Its believed to be 1 of only 111 examples built. The car was extensively frame off restored by renown Corvette aficionado Todd Spain. And its one of the finest weve ever seen! It also happens to be a fantastic driver!All of the right boxes are checked on this 56.Power windows.Power convertible soft top.Wonder Bar radio.3-speed, close ratio manual transmission.High performance 265/240hp, dual quad small block V8.Add in the stunning Aztec Copper exterior highlighted, with Biege coves, which perfectly complements the Biege interior.

Top Flight Awards.Documentation includes the aforementioned awards, extensive photo documentation of the restoration, past owner history, and a letter from Twin Oaks Classic Corvette verifying the original engine under the hood!This is a 56 for the most discriminating collector.
